Welcome to Year 6!
This is where you will find lots of photos and information about what we have been learning in class.
So far this term in Science, Year 6 have been hard at work learning about the circulatory system. During the Science enrichment week, we learnt more about the parts of the heart and it’s role in the system as well as the components of our blood. We drew representations of the heart and labelled the different chambers and blood vessels. On Thursday, we had a messy lesson all about blood in which we made our own bag of blood and represented each component of the blood (red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets) using orange squash, red food colouring, cheerios, marshmallows, and sprinkles. It was rather gruesome but we really enjoyed the hands on experience! Can you work out what each component what represented by?
